June 27th - July 29th
This specialized intensive is for the advanced ballet student who needs to strengthen their pointe work. It is designed for dancers who are beginning the process of auditioning for apprenticeships with professional companies but are not quite ready for that next step.
We work on the basics of the pointe technique, spending needed time at the barre doing basic releves and strengthening foot exercises to improve the dancer’s ability to perform variations and choreography on pointe with strength and finesse.We teach the whole body approach to pointe work working on proper alignment, rotation, and placement.
The intensive is a 3, 4, or 5 week program that consists of a 2 hour ballet technique class Monday through Friday followed by 1 1/2 hr pointe class 3 days/wk and variations 2 days/wk and a 45 minutes Stretch or Pilates class.
Auditions are by appointment only.
Audition Class Times:
Tuesday -Thursday 9:30-11:15
